XVideo is old and may also introduce tearing.

Nvidia blob has proper XVideo sync per-monitor, but other drivers don't. They usually require tinkering with xorg config, Intel e.g. Unless Intel's drivers defaults are now more friendly in this regard, I don't know. And I have zero clue for AMD.

Mine was set to Automatic, as mentioned in the Post. I have several machines which started to act up and they all have recovered (they also were set to Automatic). Interestingly I do have an Acer Laptop, which has yet to require any fix, even though it has been 'upgraded' regularly. I will give 'Opengl (XCB)' a go and see how it performs. Thanks for the 'tip'.
I am not sure if any have Nvidia but I have never specifically installed the 'Nvidia blob', as far as I am aware.

PS: Tried OpenGL(XCB) and it froze the Video, so I reverted

Re: VLC broken?

It seems that each VLC update on my machine has set the video back to automatic, which caused it to use VDPAU. Well, VDPAU doesn't work too well on Intel. But, each time, I changed it, and VLC workd fine. I haven't really had issues using VLC on F25. But then again, I am also using Xfce running under X. Not even thinking about using Wayland yet.

To be honest, I just loaded it and used it. Never even looked at the output settings, never had a need to. Right now I am ripping all my DVDs to my video server so I have a common repository that I can stream to anyplace in the house. Once I get done I will play with VLC a little more.
